Is this all worth it or is it better to just hire someone to do it for you? To help you form an opinion, we created this professional oven cleaning cost guide.

We’ll go over all pricing factors, present you with an oven clean pricing table, and answer the most frequently asked questions about oven cleaning prices.

How much is professional oven cleaning?

What are the oven cleaning pricing factors?

While we do have a specific set of prices, there are some factors that come into play when forming the final price. Each of these factors is equally important both for calculating your oven clean price correctly and estimating how much time the job will take.

The cost of oven cleaning is determined by:

  • Unit type – First we take into consideration your oven type. It might be a single or a double unit. It might also be a range cooker or an AGA. This part is important because the technicians always take apart ovens to clean their parts separately. Knowing the type of oven in advance will help us prepare.
  • Unit size – Single ovens are usually 60cm in width, sometimes wider. Range cookers, on the other hand, can be between 90 and 100 centimetres. AGA cookers are a whole different class, having 2 or 4 oven compartments and additional modules. And by the way, always turn down your AGA at least twelve hours before the specialists arrive.
  • Address – Your location is also important. If you live inside the congestion zone, then the congestion fee will be included in your price. Parking space is also a factor to keep in mind – if it’s paid, you’ll need to cover the expenses, and if it requires a permit, then you’ll need to provide us with such.
  • Addition kitchen items – After you’ve specified the type of oven, you can include an extractor, splashback, electric or gas hob to your order.
  • Extra – And speaking of extra stuff, you can also have your refrigerator, washing machine, microwave, dishwasher and tumble dryer cleaned professionally as part of the service. After all, why bother wasting your time on these, when you can have someone right there, ready to handle it for you?
  • Combinations – We at Fantastic Services offer a wide variety of cleaning services, you can add those to your oven job. In addition to restoring your range cooker to its former shine, we can also clean your carpets and sofa as part of a combined service.

What’s included in an oven clean?

A service normally includes the detailed cleaning of the inside of your oven and the necessary detergents for the task. At Fantastic Services, your appliance can benefit from a very detailed cleaning including disassembling of the oven, followed by deep cleaning of the unit, plus dip tank for the oven parts. Here is how a professional cleaner would perform the job:

  1. Full inspection of the appliance.
  2. Lay protective sheets around the appliance.
  3. Disassemble the oven and take out the removable parts.
  4. Soak everything in solution.
  5. Scrub the oven on the inside to remove grease build-ups.
  6. Assemble and test the appliance before leaving.

How long does a professional oven clean take?

Usually, between an hour and two depending on the condition and size of the kitchen appliance. We take everything apart and place the removable parts in a dip tank filled with a strong cleansing solution.

In the meantime, we clean the inside of the oven manually by applying cleaning products and scraping off the grime. Later on, when all the parts such as racks, trays, back panel and fan are cleaned, we put everything back together and check to see if the oven works properly.

How often should you get your oven professionally cleaned?

While there is no specific time period, it is recommended to clean it every 3 to 6 months.

Of course, that depends a great deal on how much you use the cooker. If you cook on a regular basis, chances are that you should have it cleaned more often.

Frequently asked questions about oven clean prices

There’s more to oven cleaning prices than meets the eye. People have a lot of additional questions when booking over the phone. We’ve done our best to place those questions here, to make things easier for you.

Why hire professionals if the oven has a self-cleaning option?

The self-cleaning feature is great for burning old food splatters which you can later scrub off easily. However, the problem is you can clean only what you see. The self-cleaning option won’t take care of the vent filters, door glass, or the fan. Eventually, these parts will get dirty and you’d either have to clean them yourself or call in the pros.

How long does a self-cleaning cycle take?

One to three hours depending on the amount of grime accumulated. Keep in mind, the oven will get very hot to burn off all the fat and grease inside and a slight odour may be detected as a result. Keep pets away from the kitchen during the self-cleaning cycle. Do not use any commercial cleaning products, the self-cleaning cycle will do the job on its own.

Can you clean between the door glass?

Yes. We disassemble the unit including the oven door. When the door is dismantled, we clean the two glass panels with a special detergent. Although there is a way to clean between oven glass without disassembling the door, we always go the extra mile to achieve the best possible results. Mind you, we are unable to clean sealed oven doors.

How long should you not use an oven after cleaning?

You can use your oven right away. The detergents we use are eco-friendly and biodegradable so no toxic fumes will come out of your oven when you switch it on. Still, we advise you to turn it on for 10-15 minutes before putting food inside. This will remove the excess moisture.

Do you protect the kitchen floor from dripping and splatters?

Yes. We cover the floor with protective sheets so no accidental leakages or spills will ruin your floor or carpet. The Fantastic technicians also put on overshoes upon entering your property.

Do you clean the oven roof/ceiling?

Yes. We unscrew the grill, to gain access to the ceiling and then clean it along with the rest of the oven interior.
